What is the treatment?

Detoxification refers to the physiological or medicinal removal of toxic substances from the body. One can detoxify their body from drugs or alcohol. If your body is habituated to substance abuse for a long time, detoxification, done by experts, will help you flush all the toxins out of your body. You can identify your need for detoxification if you have constipation for a long period of time, food allergies, persistent headaches, muscle aches and muscle fatigues, skin abnormalities like acne or rosacea as well as hormonal imbalances. Detoxification treatment will purify your body of the harmful substances in your body and make it healthy. You can carry out detoxification at home by some simple home remedies.

How is the treatment done?

Before starting with a detox diet, you must get it approved by your doctor. A detox diet is a short termed diet filled with fruits, vegetables, fruit juices and water. You can start by drinking 6-8 glasses of filtered water every day. Avoid using plastic bottles, use glass bottles instead. Exercise for at least 30 minutes in a day to keep your body active. You must consume only natural foods like fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, fish, red meat, chicken without the skin, eggs, nuts and green tea. Remember to chew your food properly. It makes it easier for the body to digest the food and gives a sense of fullness avoiding the need to overeat. Start your morning with a glass of lukewarm water with a lemon squeezed in it. This helps in cleansing your system and you must make sure that your bowels are clean. It helps in preventing headaches. Try to meditate for at least 15 minutes in a day so as to detoxify your mind along with your body.
